Protecting our precious countryside


A public footpath off Garrison Lane has been enhanced

Thanks to willing volunteers and local organisations the area along a public footpath off Garrison Lane has been cleared of rubbish and invasive plants and replaced with native trees and saplings.

A new wild flower meadow has also been seeded in an effort to attract birds, butterflies and bees, as well as bird boxes.

Local champion Tricia Bamford said, "This is a great project supported in part by the Ward funding from myself and Rachel Reid.”

“The tree canopy has been lifted and you can now see for miles across the green belt. There is also a lovely noticeboard and an information board about native butterfly species to look out for. We must protect this area from development."
